Public Works
Welcome to the Butte County Department of Public Works, serving its residents since 1850. The Public Works Department maintains approximately 1,300 miles of roadways, including over 500 bridges and drainage structures and more than 18,000 road signs. Our goal is to provide you with the best customer service possible. If you are unable to find what you are looking for on our website, please call our office for more personal service.
Road Closures - County Maintained Only
Butte County is divided into four Road Maintenance Districts by relative area (Paradise, Chico, Oroville, and Gridley).  Weather related road closures and warnings are posted from a list compiled by the Road Maintenance Division of the Butte County Department of Public Works.

This page is periodically updated during storm events during normal working hours (M-F 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM). This list is for County maintained roads only, and does NOT include any roads maintained by other municipalities

Roads may be flooded and not on this list due to localized conditions. While the Department makes every effort to provide accurate information, the Department is not responsible for any omissions that may occur.
